Yep. I did it just now. It offers something I can have always on the top of my menu. That's not what I want. I want what safari, firefox and others have; a menu > bookmarks > add folder > rename folder > add bookmarks in folder. My old version of Opera on my mac side (before my hard drive crashed) used to have this too. ...
There are bookmarks, bookmarks bars, and bookmarks managers. What you are asking for seems to be a bookmarks manager, a tool many of us eagerly await, and which Opera has indictated they are still working on, following their earlier conversion of the browser to the Blink rendering engine. Some of the bookmark folder manipulation you seek may be possible within Opera's present QAB/Bookmarks functionality, but others will have to come along and explain how/if. However, the lack of a versatile bookmarks manager is one of several reasons some users like myself have refrained from switching to New Opera. Yet.
Some (but not all) users have reported problems with 12.1x 64-bit Opera's stability and such, but not with Opera 32-bit versions... perhaps this is something similar. Those reported 64-bit "issues" are the reason I've remained with 32-bit Opera on my own 64-bit Win7 installation. Often times when something like this occurs, it's some kind of obscure driver-conflict issue that varies from system to system or software suite to software suite. In any case, you can assume that 12.1x will not be updated to intentionally fix this or any other performance bug-like behavior... from here on out, Presto Opera is only being security patched if needed.
Thanks for the reply. I was afraid of that. For now, I'll use an earlier edition of Opera (v. 12) for cache viewing and may need to look into the other solution you linked to when that browser begins to fail.
a theme isn't anything more than an image for now.
Not quite true. A theme can contain two different images — one for the speed dial, and another for settings pages, plus you can define the text colour, and positioning of the image. They are working on some improvements to Themes, but Real Skins are what I need, like we have for Opera 12 or earlier.
Any chance to see this problem fixed. I have tested all versions since Opera 15 (now running last v18) and I'm still unable to connect to any site (unable to open the page) requiring a certificate with attributes matching one of my certificates. It has been working fine until 12.x.
Okay I believe I have sussed out the Flashplayer problems and it looks like it was due to utilizing a portable version of Opera as well as the installed version. I have Opera Developer installed but I have been using a portable version of Opera Stable as well. When I installed flashplayer it would work in the installed developer but I was not testing it in developer first. I would quit Developer at the end of the install due to me having 80 tabs sitting there. I would then go to the portable version and no flash would work. I'd then go back to the developer and no flash would be working there too. But If I just waited after installed so my tabs would come up in developer and then try youtube etc the flash would be working. It seems that any execution of the portable version of Opera will crash out the flash on the developer installed version. So this is a word of warning for those thinking about or attempting what I have been doing. I have now deleted the portable version off the harddrive and things seem to be okay. Keep an eye on what the Ghostery extension may be blocking since its affecting the Adobe site. Its about time we had some updates for some of these extensions.
Thanks for replies! I too had been sticking with Op 12 but it's just not compatible with some newer sites...or it works jerky; so I tried the ultimate, the one, the only CHROME - the slowest browser I've ever tried, it could be because of many apps I installed but with so many common-sense features missing, I simply couldn't browse without those apps. Then I came back to Op 12...then I got to experience (again) the incompatibility of Op12 with the newer generation sites. THEN...intelligence struck me...the new version of Op is based on Chromium, so Chrome apps HAVE to work on Op...I was right, I'm a genius:lol:
This YTB issue appears to be the final issue, which has been solved now (it appears so). One thing I don't get...since Chrome and Op are both based on Chromium, why is Op so much faster than Chrome? @sgunhouse: On that page, it says that "The default player is currently used." I can't opt out, never mind though.
